Many of our postgraduate students teach their subjects and pass on their knowledge to their peers and to students with no formal training. Using recognised pedagogical methods, this module offers you the knowledge and expertise to enable you to design, deliver, assess and evaluate teaching sessions for your colleagues, your students and your patients. The module will also enhance your ability to critically reflect and improve on your educational activities. Our module is accredited by the Advance HE, formerly the Higher Education Academy (HEA), and during this module, you will engage with the UK Professional Standards Framework (UKPSF) and work towards achieving Associate Fellowship of the HEA. This fellowship is recognition of the professional standing of your teaching practice and is internationally recognised and valued by Universities and across the HE sector, as a measure of your expertise and accomplishment.
Our online module is delivered using a blend of synchronous live teaching sessions and asynchronous recordings. Attending the live sessions is strongly encouraged as it allows you to engage with our expert teachers and your fellow students and benefit from rich discussions. Interactive groupwork in our live sessions will allow you to explore designing a teaching session in a supported environment. Our recorded sessions enable you to personalise your experience and learn at your own pace. Engaging with the blend of live sessions and recordings within each teaching week allows you to synthesise your learning as you go to get the most from this module.
The module will take place during the following weeks (exact timetable to be confirmed):
- Teaching & guided learning: 31/01-14/03/23
- Self-directed learning: 15/03-02/05/23
